3. 最高级(用于三者或三者以上的比较): Structure: the + 形容词的最高级+of / in ... e.g. Tom is the heaviest in our class.

2) 以e结尾的词,比较级+r,最高级+st 即可。 如:
nice — nicer — nicest
cute — cuter — cutest
large — larger — largest 3) 以辅音字母+y结尾的变y为i+er或est 如: easy — easier — easiest

? 三者或三者以上相比,表示最高程度 时,用“the + 最高级”的结构表示。 这种句式一般常有表示比较范围的介 词短语。例如:
Zhang Hua is the tallest of the three. He works (the) hardest in his class.

2. 最高级可被序数词以及 much,by far, nearly,almost,by no means,not quite, not really,nothing like 等词语所修饰。 例如: This hat is by far/much/nearly/ almost/not nearly/by no means/not quite/nothing like the biggest. How
much did the second most expensive hat

3. 表示“最高程度”的形容词,如 excellent,extreme,perfect等,没有最高 级,也不能用比较级。 4. 形容词最高级修饰作表语或介词宾语的 名词、代词时,被修饰的词往往省略。
e.g. He is the tallest (boy) in his class. 5. 作状语的副词最高级前可以不加定冠词。 e.g. Of all the boys he came (the) earliest.
